Reviews for the Asus ZenBook 14 UM425QA, 5800H
Source: Ultrabook Review
This ZenBook 14 UM425QA is a good-value performance ultrabook. It's significantly more powerful than the average portable laptop that you can get for under 1000 USD/EUR these days and offers a more advanced internal cooling module, while not sacrificing on portability, style, practicality, or battery life. At the same time, the Ryzen H configuration is somewhat unbalanced with only Vega iGPU graphics, and I'm not a fan of this sort of design that blows the hot air straight into the screen. But if you do need that fast CPU in this sort of portable chassis and you're OK with the quirks mentioned throughout this article, this could be right for you.

AMD Vega 8: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) and a clock of up to 2.100 MHz.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
R7 5800H: A high-performance, laptop-grade, octa-core APU. The Ryzen features eight SMT-enabled Zen 3 cores running at 3.2 GHz to 4.4 GHz along with the Vega 8 graphics adapter that runs at up to 2,000 MHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
